TAMPA — A driver on the Sunshine Skyway Bridge saved a woman who seemed ready to leap from the span early Friday morning, authorities said.
At about 5:55 a.m., a 51-year-old woman parked her 2004 Ford Mustang on the bridge's outside shoulder, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. She got out of her car and started leaning over the concrete barrier wall when another driver, Guelmis Yanes, saw her and pulled over.
Troopers said Yanes was able to stop the woman from jumping until FHP Capt. Robert Ifft arrived.
The woman was taken to St. Anthony's Hospital under the Florida Baker Act.
